The Loss (Haiku Series)


Cruel Change

In their quiet room
she contemplates his absence;
“Oh cruelty of change.”



Sweet Ache

With one strong second,
his scent flows through her – “Sweet ache,
YOU consume me still…”




Days since … seem as one;
“My tears mark the time consumed
– with unending pain.”




Nightmares consume her,
“Must I be plagued by his death
– even in my rest!?

Please God give me them
– our beautiful memories,
enveloping me!”




Silence overwhelms –
“…for no one has your laughter
to fill this void air…”
